On the Verge: Shun Ng

Looking back at the Shun Ng’s (pronounced Shoon Ing’s) formative years in Singapore, no one could have predicted he’d grow up to become the almost virtuoso guitarist he is today. Ng didn’t come from a very musical family, he struggled with classes and dyslexia from very early on and his gymnastic talent became evident long […]

On the Verge: Mother Falcon

On the Verge: Mother Falcon

Mother Falcon, an orchestral, wondrous force of a band, was kind enough to grace the WERS studio with their sprawling presence, somehow arranging seventeen of their band members in the not-so-spacious live mix room. While the Austin-based band was one of the biggest bands we’ve had in studio, squeezing into a tiny performance space is […]

On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

On the Verge: Wild Moccasins

The Houston-based, five piece indie-pop band Wild Moccasins did a few things differently when they came to the WERS studio. For one, they were short a member, arriving without drummer John Baldwin. Secondly, the band, normally electric, decided to go with a mostly acoustic set for their songs in-studio, bringing with them only two guitars […]

On the Verge: He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister

On the Verge: He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister

The band-naming process was rather simple for this LA-based band that took a rather fact-based approached. He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister is fronted by sibling duo Robert and Rachel Kolar. While sibling relationships in bands are not uncommon, having your landlord playing slide guitar next to you certainly is. That’s where Aaron Robinson comes […]
